A bicycle (or simply "bike") is a vehicle consisting of a light frame mounted on two wire-spoked wheels one behind the other and having a seat, handlebars for steering, brakes, and two pedals or a small motor by which it is driven. The first bicycles had the front wheel much larger than the rear, and were called penny-farthings. In 1991, at the Dursley home there was a picture of Dudley on the mantelpiece of him riding his first bicycle. Towards the end of Frank Bryce's life, boys rode bicycles over the lawns of the Riddle House, which irritated Frank, as he worked hard at keeping them smooth.[1]
